Wes Ball‘s Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes, featuring Owen Teague and Freya Allan, began its journey at the Indian box office with a slow start, garnering approximately Rs 3 crores.

Although the Hindi markets recorded even lower figures, the movie found a boost in the South Indian circuits, contributing to its Rs 3 crore total.

Despite its lukewarm opening, Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes is expected to emerge as the highest-grossing film of the franchise by the weekend’s conclusion.

Notably, it’s been seven years since the last Planet of the Apes instalment, with ticket prices now considerably higher. Achieving a collection of around Rs 30 crores would signify a commendable performance, akin to its predecessor.

Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes Is Viewers’ Preference Over Rivals

In the weekend lineup, Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes stands as the preferred choice among moviegoers in India. Surpassing its release competitor Srikanth, which garnered approximately Rs 2.25 crores on its opening day, the sci-fi epic has claimed the top spot.

Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes Does Much Better in the Domestic Market

In the domestic market, the film is faring much better. The film had a strong start and is on track for an opening weekend surpassing $50 million. It’s anticipated to match the performance of its predecessor.

While adjusting for inflation may alter the perspective on its earnings compared to previous Planet of the Apes films, the sustained interest in the franchise amidst evolving box-office dynamics is commendable.

Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes aims to achieve a worldwide gross of around $400 million for a theatrical breakeven, a milestone it seems poised to reach. Beyond box office earnings, the film is expected to generate revenue through home rentals, satellite rights, digital platforms, and merchandise sales.
